My Mystery Grandfather

DNA testing has revealed an unexpected event. Louisa Wildbore, my Grandmother, married in 1898 and had eight children with her husband registered as their father. Two of these children died as infants. Of the remaining six, descendants of four of them have DNA tested which has revealed that two of the four were not fathered by Louisa's husband but do share a common father. This Mystery Grandfather must have been in the Feilding, Manawatu area of NZ between, at least, 1903 and 1906.
